Apple service centers in kolkata has came up with new scheme called APPLE iPHONE BUYBACK IN KOLKATA SCHEME. Everybody is really happy with scheme for them this scheme is like a knight in shining armor. However people are overlooking the bad side of this scheme and the loss that is occurring while they are opting for this scheme. In this article I will break down where they are facing the loss. Also I will break down all the price of your apple iPhone parts.
Apple iPhone buyback In Kolkata
What is buyback?
First let me tell you what buyback is –
A buyback, also known as a repurchase, is the purchase by a company of its products that reduces the number of the existing old product on the open market. Companies buy back products for a number of reasons, such as to increase the value of the product still available by reducing the supply of them or eliminate any threats by existing products to to the new products in the market.
What does Apple do with the old iPhone they receive from their Apple iPhone buyback program?
They refurbish them and sell them worldwide if they still sell them. They also use them in their repair and replace programs for broken iPhones, which they keep for up to 4 years. That means that Apple still has to keep refurbished models of the iPhone 4s on hand in case someone comes in and needs it repaired. If they are extremely old and they no longer sell or support that model and have not in the past 3 years, they recycle them. You’d have to go back as far as the iPhone 3Gs for that though and so very few people even have that phone that the number being traded in would be almost negligible.
Let me break it down for you:
Right now apple has its old product like iPhone 5, 5S, 5C available in the market which is comparatively cheaper than 6, 6s, SE, 7 and 7 Plus. And people are buying more of those than the newer ones which is bad for business. So if you apply the buy back option you are giving up your device giving some extra cash and getting the new phone. The loser in this deal is – a) The retailer & b) You. Because you are paying double for an upgraded version. You are not getting the value for your old phone at all. And the retailer is paying more to the company which means less profit.
THE APPLE iPHONE BUYBACK IN KOLKATA SCHEME
Apple has introduced a new buyback scheme for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Available across select offline retail channels, users can trade-in their old apple smartphone and get anywhere between Rs 9,000 to Rs 25,000 off on a brand new iPhone 6s, 6s Plus. After the buyback discount, one can get the 16GB base variant iPhones 6s between Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000.
So basically even if you are giving up on your 64 gb iphone 5s for that you are getting a 16gb iphone 6s. And your phone is even slightly damaged the scheme value goes down.
THE BAD SIDE OF IPHONE BUY BACK SCHEME
Let me break it down for you
An apple iPhone 6s plus 32 gb price is rs. 55,000 (approx, online) and
for apple iPhone 5s 64 gb the price is 25,000 (approx,online)
So basically you are buying the 6s 16 gb for 30,000 (approx) that is what you are thinking actually.
If the phone is slightly damaged or scratched your value decreases rapidly so if apple is decreasing the value of your phone for just a scratch or dent then you are paying more for the phone (remember you can get more value for the old phone in external market.)
So, lets assume your phone value has gone down to 10,000 now and you are paying 45,000 from your own pocket.
You can get a new apple iPhone 6 32gb for 16,000 less. And between the 2 phones there isn’t really that much difference.
For your old iphone 5s 64gb you might get 18,000 – 20,000 in the outside market even with a small dent or scratch and without them even more. So if you get 20k for the old phone you just need to add 9000 more and you can buy a new iphone 6 32 gb in the market.
To be honest you are not getting value for money because your paying up 45000 plus you are giving up on your phone which might cost more than what you are getting in the apple store.
So you are actually paying – 45000+20,000= 65,000 which is 10,000 more than the expected price.
This is a brilliant scheme to get more out of the customer and the retailer but apple is getting paid above their profit level.
APPLE PARTS EXCHANGE POLICY
Now, let’s talk about the legendary apple parts exchange policy –
If you are in warranty and your phone is dead apple will change the whole phone for free but they will take an inspection charge.
If your screen is broken you are in trouble the warranty gets void at that very moment. They will not exchange the screen but they will change the whole device and take half of the phone price.
Let’s say you have an apple iphone 6s and it needs a screen replacement your warranty is voidv and you have to pay 27,500 for the exchange phone so you are paying again which can be done within 16,000 you are paying 11,000 more and the phone with it.
So, if you break anything on your phone you are paying for a new part with everything.
